Out of everything in your car, what would you say is the most important? Maybe it’s having a fresh oil change from Five Stars Auto Care, maybe it’s having a full tank before you hit the road – but one thing that’s generally overlooked until it’s too late, your brakes. Without them, where would we be? Probably still rolling.
Every car needs brakes, it’s inevitable that they’ll need replacement eventually, and it’s better to do it ahead of time before brake failure. If you drive every day, you’ve got a pretty good idea of how well your brakes work; nonetheless it’s a good idea to get a yearly check-up at your local automotive shop. If you don’t know what to check for, Five Stars Auto Care would be happy to check all of it for you and answer any questions you may have.
Wondering if your car is in need of maintenance from Five Stars Auto Care? Feel free to stop by and ask for a routine brake inspection, or you can search for these signs yourself: when you let go of the steering wheel slightly, it pulls to the left or to the right opposed to going straight. Maybe you’re hearing abnormal noises when you apply the brakes, or the brake light is on. A few other signs can be brake grabbing, pedal feeling lower than usual, vibrating, or a harder pedal to push than usual and it squeals when you do.
As you read above, plenty of signs can be shown that your brakes are beginning to fail and may need replacement as soon as possible. Routine maintenance can be annoying to fit into your schedule, but your safety is important to us at Five Stars Auto Care. If you wait too long for routine maintenance, it can easily lead to a more costly repair bill. Be safe out there!
